JF was the cutest! I still remember talking to you about that in the line or right when I got out of the line! *giggles*

My last 20 were 8 review copies, 7 library books and 6 bought or received as gifts. Not too bad of a balance! I"m somewhat surprised that it came out this evenly.

Great list! But I have to admit, I wonder how you managed to get those awesome books at the Frankfurt Book Fair ;-)
